John Bunch, a 300-pound sophomore center for Lincoln University, used his 7-foot-2 1/2 height to block 18 shots against Valley Forge Christian College 10 days ago in a game that appears to be headed for the NCAA record books. The performance by the former Randallstown High basketball player should soon be documented by the NCAA as an all-time single-game record for all three divisions. Lincoln (Pa.) is a Division III school located 60 miles north of Baltimore. Valley Forge is a Division II school.

PHILADELPHIA - In a bland, windowless room at the nation's oldest historically black college, amid stacks of moldering files and sheaves of tattered papers, Ed Gibson makes history. Literally. One of two archivists at Lincoln University, Gibson sifts methodically through 65 musty boxes of lost letters, worn books and wilted posters that bring to life black history in the Philadelphia region and the nation. Like a scavenger, he picks through papers one by one and indexes documents for students and scholars.

Everything happens for a reason. And in my case, the reason stuff happens is so I can write it down in this weekly column documenting my joyful, unremarkable life. My son signed up in June to take the September LSAT, only to discover that all of the test centers in the Baltimore-Washington area were filled. My husband, whose turn it was to flog the dead horse of preparedness, remarked: "What does this tell you about the type of people who sign up to take the LSAT?" My son replied: "Obviously, they are a group of very uptight, type-A people."

In his younger days, Jeffrey Perkins spent countless hours practicing acrobatic flips with his neighborhood friends. These days, however, it's the track coaches at Woodlawn who are doing back flips over the emergence of the 17-year-old as one of the area's premier sprinters. The senior recently won three Baltimore County titles, including individual gold in the 400, and followed that up with individual championships in the 100 and 400 at the Class 4A North regionals. Now, two years after transferring from Reginald F. Lewis High in the city, Perkins will be one of Woodlawn's top hopes at this weekend's Class 4A state meet.
